Tom Hayden joins us again, to continue the Rag Radio conversation we began on Friday, January 6, 2012. Our first interview with Hayden can be found here:

According to Nicolas Lemann of The Atlantic, "Tom Hayden changed America." One of the most influential progressive activists in the United States, Hayden was a moving force in SDS and the Sixties New Left. He was the primary author of the Port Huron Statement, "An Agenda for a Generation," which is being widely celebrated this year on its 50th anniversary. Tom later served for 18 years in the California State Assembly where, according to the Sacramento Bee, he was "the conscience of the Senate." Hayden is director of the Peace and Justice Resource Center, edits the Peace Exchange Bulletin, and is organizing anti-war activities for the Progressive Democrats of America (PDA). He's the author of 19 books and writes widely on issues of war and social justice.

Much of our earlier discussion with Tom Hayden was about the Sixties: SDS, the Port Huron Statement, and the Civil Rights Movement; in this interview the emphasis is on the state of American society and our relation to the rest of the world, the work Tom is doing with his Peace and Justice Resource Center and the PDA, his work to end America's long war (and to prevent a war in Iran) and to build the progressive movement in this country, inside (and outside) electoral politics and the Democratic Party. We also discuss the Occupy Wall Street movement, the environment and green jobs, and other issues facing progressive the Obama administration.
